We're number one. Brrrr... 1 degree temperatures is now a new record low for the area, which was set this morning. It was 1 degree at 7A and the old record low was 9 degrees, set in 2007.

The record for Saturday is also 9 degrees and tonight's low is expected to be 10, so that record is also in jeopardy. Some schools are closed, others are opening on delayed schedule, citing icy roads and cold temperatures. Yonkers schools are closed today due to road conditions.

Major roadways are generally clear this morning, though icy patches have caused some minor accidents. The good news is that cold temperatures are expected to rise by Sunday, thank God!
